This is a newly established domain, that will grow over time to enable the next step in Polestar's growth. The Manufacturing and Logistics team is responsible for the digital solutions used to build and deliver our cars. The digital solutions in this area help bring materials from the suppliers to the plant including Customs clearance, as well as to steer the logistics and the manufacturing processes inside the plant. Once the car is produced the Yard and Outbound logistics solutions will support the distribution of the car to the customer including support for different Customs processes.
